Old Rose and Silver

Old Rose and Silver by Myrtle Reed
By:

The novel follows the lives of Rose and her widowed Aunt, Madame Francesca Bernard, along with young visitor and cousin Isabel, whose lives are changed by the return of an old friend and neighbour Colonel Kent, and his grown son, Allison. Other characters that help shape their lives in significant ways are the Crosby twins, unconventional and uninhibited youths that set society at naught, and an unconventional doctor who specializes in the impossible. Through the limited "wide-scope" descriptions the reader is not sure of the historical setting or even in which decade it's set, but it helps to understand the focus of the story; after all it's about their own little world, and how their own hearts and lives fit together in the tight confines of their town, their garden, their friendships and lives.

The last hushed chord died into silence, but the woman lingered, dreaming over the keys. Firelight from the end of the room brought red gold gleams into the dusky softness of her hair and shadowed her profile upon the opposite wall... Continue reading book >>

Sentimental and enjoyable love story where every one is happy at the end. The reading is okay, except the French words, such as sachet, are mispronounced and jarring to the ear.
